After braving a week of whip lashing weather, the SCA team entered its first official week of project work with calm winds and a sky full of sunshine. The team was introduced to regular site mainentace tasks at the Grand Canyon Visitor Center, including fixing and installing plant caging. As an extension of their training, we completed a planting site that was started late fall of last year. The team quickly became acquainted with common plants we'll be working with for the rest of the season including Chamaebatiaria millefolium (Fern bush), Ribes cerum (Wax current), Bouteloua gracilis (Blue grama), Poa Fendleriana (Muttongrass), Artemesia tridentata (Big sagebrush), and Penstemon rostriflorus (Beaked beardstougue).
